Leaders of Lurie College | Luna

Meet Luna, recently graduated SJSU undergrad and one of the leaders of Lurie College!

“I, like many, chose to attend college to try and live out my dreams and make the world a better place. I have hopes of the world becoming a more accessible place for those who may not fit the majority’s idea of “normal”. My focus is on the Deaf culture – the culture I call my own as a CODA from a generationally Deaf family. One day I’ll be a part of a large movement for accessibility and maybe owning a healthcare practice where everyone employed is fluent in ASL and well-versed in Deaf culture.”

Leaders of Lurie College | Saili

Meet Saili, SJSU faculty member and one of the leaders of Lurie College!
 
“I fell in love with my position as an elementary inclusion educator in Oakland Unified School District. The work of inclusion made sense to me and I see the value in co-teaching and supporting ALL learners. Like many of my students at SJSU, I earned my credential while working as an intern teacher, so I truly understand first-hand what it’s like! Ultimately, the support of the professors in my credential program propelled me to ask more questions and pursue a Ph.D. in Special Education!”

Leaders of Lurie College | Summer

Meet Summer, SJSU credential student and one of the leaders of Lurie College!

“Growing up with a sister with cerebral palsy set no limits. She was in the special education system from 18 months until 5th grade. She was fully included starting at 6th grade. She earned her B.A. at SJSU and now is a master’s student here. As for me, I was diagnosed with Dyslexia and ADHD in 5th grade. I received services since 5th grade and I graduated from CSU, Monterey Bay with honors. I want to become a teacher for children with disabilities so I can help them become successful citizens.”
